Golf is Back in Style

by Keith Koffler on December 28, 2011, 5:13 pm

After missing a day Tuesday, President Obama is back out on the links. We’re at golf round number 33 for the year and 91 for the presidency.

Today he’s at the Ko’olau Golf Club in Kaneohe on Oahu.

Nice. Here’s the ninth hole.

{ 3 trackbacks }


One Mad Woman December 28, 2011 at 5:18 pm

The best thing about his playing golf so much (and I actually wish he sould do it 24 hrs a day), is when he is on the golf course he is only tearing up dirt and grass, but when he is playing president he is tearing up our country.

Beth December 28, 2011 at 5:25 pm

Are you serious? (I suppose you are.)

What is it about those of you who think that President Obama has, all on his own, destroyed this country? This destruction was going on long before Barack Obama became President. The American people realized that and that’s why we elected Obama and not McCain and Palin. And those of us who voted for President Obama had no reservations about doing so, even though we knew he was going to have a tough time going since he’s had to clean up someone else’s mess! Why do you think George W. Bush is so quiet? It’s not because he’s being polite; it’s because he just might have to answer for what he and his administration did to this country.

are you ill?

MarjoJimbo December 28, 2011 at 6:11 pm

I disagree with you, Beth, with blaming just Bush. Our elected officials have been and continue to ruin our country through their legislative actions over the past MANY decades and not just on the federal level. And many of us have been on asleep on the job and continually reelect the same old, same old.

Mr. Obama, I believe, has just accelerated the downward spiral of our country through his ruthless policies and politics.

Michelle, no not THAT ONE December 28, 2011 at 6:34 pm

I suppose you forget that Dear Leader Barack was also a member of the Senate during some of the Bush years? How is it that the Republicans get all of the blame now for Obama’s failings but Bush receives all the blame when he was president and the Senate Democrats held a majority some of those years? Rhetorical question of course, Democrats are delusional and such liars that they refuse to accept the facts about the economy, spending and entitlements that are bankrupting the country.

LMAO… and what great “legislature” did “Senator” Barack Hussein Obama bring forward? H#ll he only voted “present” most of the time AND Never served a ‘full term’… rather pathetic for a “US Senator”

Lizzy December 29, 2011 at 9:31 am

Courageousely voting present.

Darrel December 28, 2011 at 7:19 pm

Just say no to drugs.

And how exactly are Obama’s policies going to clean up the mess? Seems to me he’s adding gasoline to the fire. 8.6 percent unemployment (real number much higher) Do you think it will stay at 8.6 percent? Sears, Kmart, and Best Buy among others to close down 100+ locations.

fred December 28, 2011 at 8:01 pm

Another White House employee on the dole! Writing scripted responses intended to somehow influence independent voters. I’d list the facts, but there isn’t enough space…Unemployment Multiples of Bush…debt Multiples of Bush…border security a fraction of Bush…regulation Multiples of Bush..Oh Heck, there are simply too many facts to list…but I admire the effort in the face of totally different truths…

Lindy December 28, 2011 at 9:09 pm

Beth, Are *you* serious?!?


OldGiy December 29, 2011 at 10:47 am

Methinks you have had way to much of the kool-aid Beth.

Star December 29, 2011 at 12:43 pm

This does sound sorta canned, Beth. No one said this horrifying slide came only from Obama’s decisions to push through a half-vast health mess or a cobbled up pet project “stimulus”–but those things did not help and hurt like mad! Also backing things the Reps won’t go for to make them look had is childish–we need thinking here! A new start!

AFVET December 29, 2011 at 2:01 pm

Look into the mirror Beth,…do you see an image ?

Susan December 28, 2011 at 5:35 pm

What a gorgeous view…must be like playing in paradise. No wonder he’s asking for another $1.2 Trillion increase in the debt limit so soon. Suck it up peasants…we must all chip in to keep our royalty in the comfort they have become accustomed to.

cindylu December 28, 2011 at 5:43 pm

He (and mumu) are so pedestrian in their tastes-Hawaii? Lobster? Ice cream cones? It’s the behavior of a lottery winner, not a president

no class, no dignity, no sense of self

Janice/Granny Jan December 28, 2011 at 6:20 pm

This might be the most exclusive club Obama has ever played at, rated 7th in the USA with a 120,000 sq ft clubhouse. It’s for the top 1% of the 1%.

Susan December 28, 2011 at 7:11 pm

That place is the crème de la crème of golf courses. I’m just happy to see he isn’t shutting down the military course again.

Rod December 28, 2011 at 6:46 pm

Whew, I was getting worried there for a minute that work might actually percolate up to the top of the President’s priority list.

Jack December 28, 2011 at 7:13 pm

WHD’s mechanics team to the rescue fixed yesterday’s problem for sure, now he’s pursuing the full “course” of his presidency.

DeniseVB December 28, 2011 at 8:45 pm

Local Hawaii news covers a website criticizing the Obama’s extravagant vacay…

Janice/Granny Jan December 28, 2011 at 9:47 pm

Good one. Thanx

langley barfly December 29, 2011 at 8:01 am

…they are allowed to “criticizie” Obama in Hawaii?

James G. Borden December 28, 2011 at 9:35 pm

If people think that the illegal president is ruining the country now this is just the tip of islam iceberg as to what the moslem president is going to do should that turd get re-elected.

Lizzy December 29, 2011 at 4:36 am

I may never sleep again have nightmares of 4 more years. That would
give him time to finish us off and America:(

Qestout December 28, 2011 at 11:08 pm

Oh, yes! I’m rooting for 95 before vacay is over.

DeniseVB December 28, 2011 at 11:40 pm
William December 29, 2011 at 7:44 am

Look at those gorgeous mountains ripe for hiking. Who would want to golf when he could get all up in those?

Susan December 29, 2011 at 8:17 am

Too late…he already spent one hour hiking right before his record breaking 90th golf game earlier this week. That mountain scenery does look like a hiker’s paradise William.

Star December 29, 2011 at 7:24 pm

William likes to bound up mountains–bet you wish you were there, Wm…

Car in December 29, 2011 at 8:40 am

You guys may be right about 36. I thought 3 rounds of golf would be the max he could fit in.

But he could fit in 4. Easy.

JT December 29, 2011 at 11:03 am

Not to deride anybody’s choice of sport, but for me personally – golf is the deliberate and willful misuse of a perfectly good rifle range.

AFVET December 29, 2011 at 2:11 pm


Star December 29, 2011 at 2:52 pm

and funny.

langley barfly December 29, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Since Obama plays so much golf…

What is his Golf score…?

(Barack Hussein Obama MUST be better than Tiger Woods…)

langley barfly December 29, 2011 at 4:00 pm

How did Barack Hussein Obama; some poor kid from Indonesia (re: “Hawaii”) and a so-called ‘community organizer’ from corrupt Chicago learn to play & love the game of Golf…?

Bob Snob December 29, 2011 at 6:19 pm

You know this golf course is owned by a church, right?
